One other possibility.....it could be that the other half of that "duo" is having an issue passing the medical.
This happened to a band called Dakota. Their drummer failed the cholestrol test and was not allowed on the ship until he was within safe limits.
They had to use a fill in drummer for a couple of months.
Since Calypso music can be done by one steel drum player if needed....this guy may just be winging it until the other half of the duo can get on the ship.
Not saying this is the case...just a possibility. It just seems odd that only one ship would not have at least a duo...
COMPLETES THE FLEET
If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!
Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
